We introduce the contents, content of book into cuttlefish, and it is basic of the binding and book design, but superior design talks about the world of the book more attractively whether you can appeal to reader. We investigate charm of "book" which is physical through book design of kozufisshu which Sofue and he preside over by book exhibition. Our reading environment with feeling that completely changed by appearance of digital device. Meanwhile, we approach in passion loaded one with for this dakarakosono expression of paper while chasing the process how book is made.

Various send book which Sofue actually designed from structure of paper and book that trial and error to begin, and to realize them is used for book, print method to binding from idea plan soup stock to example how book is made. In addition, we introduce production process for Soseki Natsume "heart" that is familiar with many Japanese "I ha cat dearu" refurbishing finely.
